The Journey Begins – Numbers 7-10
God knows all and each stands before Him and is acknowledged by Him. None is overlooked or forgotten.
Vs. 5 God told Moses to accept.
Vs. 87-89 God speaks with Moses from behind the veil of the Most Holy Place.
All of Israel laid hands on them.
Levites only serve 25 years.
Vs. 6 Passover celebrated and an exception is made for those who were defiled by death.
Vs. 15-23 Ongoing presence and guidance of God
Goes to show that even the miraculous can become the mundane – nothing is
held permanently sacred in the minds of fallen man.
Vs. 1-10 Silver trumpets and the meaning of the blasts. This is also how we know about the blast at the Feast of Trumpets (“Last trump shall sound”).
1Cor. 15:50-55, HCSB “(50) Brothers, I tell you this: flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, and corruption cannot inherit incorruption. (51) Listen! I am telling you a mystery: We will not all fall asleep, but we will all be changed, (52) in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we will be changed. (53) Because this corruptible must be clothed with incorruptibility, and this mortal must be clothed with immortality. (54) Now when this corruptible is clothed with incorruptibility, and this mortal is clothed with immortality, then the saying that is written will take place: Death has been swallowed up in victory. (55) O Death, where is your victory? O Death, where is your sting?”
1Thess. 4:13-18, HCSB “(13) We do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, concerning those who are asleep, so that you will not grieve like the rest, who have no hope. (14) Since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, in the same way God will bring with Him those who have fallen asleep through Jesus. (15) For we say this to you by a revelation from the Lord: We who are still alive at the Lord’s coming will certainly have no advantage over those who have fallen asleep. (16) For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the archangel’s voice, and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. (17) Then we who are still alive will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air; and so we will always be with the Lord. (18) Therefore encourage one another with these words.”
…and the Journey begins…
Each time they went forward from their encampment, they did so in the following order…
East went first:
Carrying the banner of Judah
Then the tabernacle was taken down and the Gershonites and the Merari set out carrying the tabernacle and the courtyard.
Then the SOUTH went carrying the banner of Reuben
Then the Kohathites carrying the holy things
Then the West went behind the banner of Ephraim
Then the North went under the banner of Dan
I hope this teaching will challenge you and encourage you to place your trust in the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. …Blessings!
